Man Has 86 Christmas Trees – Redneck Headlines
Don't spend hours scouring the web for the best and weirdest news from around the world - let us do it! Each weekday we proudly present you with the best Redneck Headlines and the stories behind them.
Here are today's Redneck Headlines:
#1 - Man's Hand Attached To Ankle
#2 - Most Jealous Employee of the Month
#3 - Man Has 86 Christmas Trees
Hands down this is the craziest story you'll hear all day. A Chinese man who severed his hand in a work accident last month has finally had it re-attached to his arm. But wait a minute. If it wasn't attached for an entire month, where was it? Not in a freezer. Not in a Ziploc bag. It was attached to the man's ankle.
Doctors weren't able to perform the re-attachment surgery right away because other procedures had to be done first. So in the meantime, in order to keep the detached hand alive, doctors grafted it onto his ankle.
That means for a month the patient actually had a hand attached to his ankle. Must have made it easier for him to pull up his socks and tie his shoes. Doctors say they had no other choice. It was the only way to keep the hand alive. I guess you could say their hands were tied. If you'd like to see a picture - click here. (Fox News)
Being named "Employee of the Month" is kind of a big deal at one Florida Walmart. The employee gets a huge sense of pride, bragging rights, and, well, not much else. What he or she doesn't get is protection from jealous co-workers who think they should have that sense of pride and bragging rights.
Cops say Willie Mitchell was apparently so enraged that his co-worker was named "Employee of the Month" instead of him, that he went out into the parking lot, grabbed his gun and shot up her SUV – thus guaranteeing him jail time and little chance at ever winning "Employee of the Month." In fact, he's already been terminated from his job in what has to be one of the most-obvious firings in Walmart history. (NY Daily News)
How many Christmas trees do you have in your house? One? Maybe two? Brandon Smith of Greenwood, Indiana, laughs at your amateurish attempts at Christmas decorating.
This Christmas-lover has 86 trees in his house. You know, because sometimes just 70 or 80 isn't enough. Every available space in his house is taken up by a tree. It takes 52,000 lights to keep all those trees glowing – enough wattage to heat his home to a toasty 85 degrees and also put a $350-a-month electric bill in his mailbox.
Smith says it's an obsession. All of the trees are artificial and most of them are donated to him by people who don't want them anymore. And every evening in the month of December, he opens his home to visitors to check out his collection. (Huffington Post)
